We Believe

As a member congregation of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC) in Atlanta, Georgia we believe and confess our faith in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  To read the full confession of faith by the NALC please click here.

We Worship

We love, adore, and praise God through worship. Our Sunday worship services are family friendly.  Children are welcome in worship and participate in a special children’s sermon. We grow in our understanding and faith following the annual cycle of seasons and days observed in commemoration of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as we come to church each week.

We Learn

Education is a core principle of the Lutheran Church tradition. Jesus was a teacher. His and the other words written down for us in the Bible are good to know. We hear four readings from the Bible each week during worship, often from the Old Testament, Psalms, the New Testament and one of the four Gospels. We have education classes on Sunday morning for adults and children. On weekdays we have a men's Bible study available via Zoom and a women's circle meets in person for study and fellowship.

We Serve

We live out our faith serving others, both those who come to our church and those who will never come. Jesus tells us to care for the poor, to be helpful to those in need. Running community food drives for a local food pantry (Toco Hills Community Alliance), participating in the Atlanta Community Food Bank Hunger Walk, and supporting each other as we serve with our gifts and talents in our local communities are some examples of what we do. 

Our financial donations have supported several local charities:
